Starting a Strawberry Farm

Starting a commercial strawberry farm takes interest, experience and capital. If you are planning to cultivate strawberries for profit, you must undertake intense preparation to get off to a good start.

Prepare yourself for this task by having your questions about strawberry farming answered reading our basic guide.

Strawberry Farm Startup Needs

Starting a commercial strawberry farm is not for everyone. It requires a special interest in strawberry farming and selling, years of experience in strawberry growing, and a lot of capital. You’d need some $1,000 to raise an acre of strawberries. You’d need to purchase or lease at least a few acres of land and get the equipment to cultivate a crop. You’d need a tractor, spreader, bedder, pickup truck, irrigation system, mowers, and sprayers. These equipments cost a lot if you buy them, that’s why some farmers opt to rent instead. More importantly, you have to have the experience in growing strawberries, perhaps by learning it from childhood if your family already owns an orchard or by working for one strawberry farm for a long time. Experience and knowledge are needed to grow a sensitive crop as a strawberry.

Strawberry Cultivation Basics

Strawberry planting and harvesting often can take up to a year. You’d need to go through several stages of planning, planting, cultivating and harvesting. To start a farm, you’d need to prepare your soil for strawberry growing. Check on the kind of soil you have by performing a soil test. Strawberries prefer loam soil, particularly sandy loam soil. Knowing your soil type and composition will help you decide how to prepare it for cultivation. You might need to broadcast lime in order to adjust its pH to the preferred pH strength of 6 by strawberries. Then you need to apply fertilizer and fumigate the soil to control weed growth. You’ll need to spray fungicides and insecticides later when the strawberries have grown. A major task in strawberry farming is the installation of irrigation and sprinkler system for the water needs of the plant. All these processes could take almost a year. But there are also varieties that ripen in shorter times. The Chandler variety is the most commonly preferred variety because of its adaptability to the climate.

Similar Articles

Because of the complexity needed in growing a crop like strawberry, intense preparation is necessary. In order to successfully start a farm, someone planning to do so should come up with a business plan to contain all the necessary aspects of the business. The business plan should include information on what kind of strawberry farming system will be used, the orchard layout, the farming timetable, marketing strategy and the financial analysis for the farm.

The financial aspect should include the variable costs for seeds, fertilizer, pesticide, labor, and overhead; and the fixed costs such as money spent for acquiring land, and paying depreciation, taxes and insurance.

Torrey, Toiga and Solana are best for banglore and mahabaleshwar as well. Pusa Early Dwarf Breed is best for north India.

    @debra richards, Hello debra richards, strawberry farming is really a wonderful idea, it is very easy to grow and you can produce fruitful amount from this farming. Here are some basic points you need to follow for this farming.

    • You should plant the strawberries in 12 to 18 inches distance in rows and each rows must be at least in 3 feet distance from each other.
    • It needs slightly less than neutral pH and well drained soil. These plants need height, sunlight and avoid to plant it in open area.
    • The root of the plant should be straight down towards soil. The important point is if you want to grow enough strawberries for profit then you should have good size of land, (In one acre of land you can get 10,000 pound of strawberries) hire workers and rent machinery.
    • The most complex part of growing strawberry is that to get disease-free plants. i have mentioned some other points in previous comments, you can read them as well.

    I started with 30 plants last year now i already have a 500+ plants and growing , now to expand but i do disagree with some unnecessary cost. Farming is patience it is better you start small and get splits from your plants as from there .You will learn a lot from starting small and mistakes will not be costly as when you launch a big farm full of strawberry plant. Strawberry need water so plan on that as drip irrigation is the preferred as you save on water and time you will waster watering individual plants. For more inbox me : baznack04@yahoo.com

    Hello friends Strawberry transplanting will start in north India from Mid September to mid November. It is right time to book plants in advance. Ofra variety is good for Haryana region early maturing. Chandler is good for Punjab and Jammu region. When Ofra fruit is over in haryana then Chandler fruit supply starts from punjab. There is heavy booking from punjab region this season and plant rate is also high due to bad weather. Happy strawberry farming.
  • Rahul said on August 8, 2014
    @Gurnand Dhillon, @Mandeep Singj. Strawberry can be grown in any part of Punjab and Amritsar also provided ph value of soil and water is suitable. Soil ph of 6.0 to 6.5 is best but 5.5 to 7.0 is also good. Soil water should be sweet. Many big farmers are exporting to europe and arab countries. Himachal hills are good for nursery and runner multiplication. Sweet Strawberry farming. Good luck.

  • Rahul beginner adviser said on August 18, 2014
    @Rupinder_singh, Go for soil testing. ph should be around 6.0 to 6.5 Test water also. Should be sweet not brakish. Ideal time for planting runners in punjab is before 30 th Oct. Soil preferred is sandy loamy. Water logging area to be avoided. If every thing above is ok.then start with 2 kanals in the first year then increase area by next year as u get hands on experience. Strawberry plantation is a labour intensive 7 months crop. requires lot of care. but highly remunerative also. Fruits sell from 100 to 300 per kg.Fruits are highly perishable require special care for plucking packing and marketing. Many big guns are directly exporting it to Arab and european countries. There is lot of scope for this fruit in punjab. Go for sweet strawberry farming. Good luck. Still hav any doubt u may call me.

    Dear @Neeraj Ophera or opra vatiety is very popular among commercial growers of haryana in particular Hisar region. It is high yielding bright colour and hardy fruit. This fruit can be easily transported without any damage to distant places. This is early maturing variety as compared to Chandler. Regarding best timing for transplanting before 15 September. As per me me early transplanting will get high value of fruit. Ophera can also be tried in southern districts of punjab. Hope my answer satisfies your query. Best of luck.Go for sweet Ophera strawberry farming.
  • Rahul beginner adviser said on August 21, 2014
    Dear @sahil, i have lot of info on strawberry farming given on this page pl go through that. Strawberry can be grown from seeds in green houses. but mostly runner plants are multiplied from mother plants. Then these are transplanted in fields. Also survival rate of transplanted plants is more. In north india strawberry nursery plants are grown in Shimla Kullu Manali Palampur Solan hills and Chd. Some growers use tissue culture for strawberry plants but these are costly. Plants cost from 3-6 rs per plant according to quality and variety of strawberry. If u have still any doubt please feel free to email or chat with me. Go for sweet Strawberry farming...!!!!!

  • Rahul beginner adviser said on September 8, 2014
    Excess water is not good for strawberry. It needs less water but more frequently. No water stagnation is permissible for it. Plants are susceptible for fungus attack sometimes. If fields are termite affected then termite treatment is must for soil. Before planting 2-3 ploughings are recommended to kill weeds. Plant roots are dipped/treated in bavastin solution before transplanting.I think it is ok.

  • Rahul beginner adviser said on September 14, 2014
    Hello @sahil according to Dr.Bawaskar best time for planting is september but since of the fields are full in paddy so after clearing paddy from fields give 2-3 ploughing to clear weeds from the field. If area is termite affected give anti termite treatment. Apply farm yard manure with 8 trollies per acre. Spray urea 50 kg per acre. Farmyard manure and urea may be reduced correspondingly if less area is planted. Sandy loamy is the best soil for strawberry farming. Hard soil should be avoided. Water logging area to be avoided. To be continued.
